Duane Burnett

Technical Operations Manager

Duane Burnett AdvisorEngine

Determining “what” needs to be done and “how” it can be done

My role as Technical Operations Manager is to oversee our DevOps, DataOps, SecOps, and IT departments, leading a team of hard working and intelligent people. My teams keep our software running smoothly, securely, and reliably accessible, while confirming all the data is flowing and accurate. With 15 years of tenure in our organization across various roles, I lend experience and organization to what we do. Primarily, my role is coordinating higher level efforts across our various platforms, directing our operations team managers, planning for the future, ensuring we maintain high security standards, performing regular audits, and assisting wherever needed.

What brought me here

I went to culinary school out of high school and became a chef right away. I worked every night and most weekends – never seeing my family. Then I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Long story short, I beat it and am now in remission. Cancer changed me, changed my priorities. I went back to school and studied programming and networking. Through school, I was connected with an internship for Junxure and at the end, was offered a full time position. When Junxure was acquired by Advisor Engine, I was called on to step into a leadership role in the new organization.

How I balance life

What I do outside of work depends upon the weather. If it is sunny out, I can be found enjoying life outside – camping, fishing or working in the yard. If it is a rainy day, I prefer to be inside, at my computer. I am an independent game developer and self-taught coder. I have created eight different video games and look forward to developing more.

Who inspires a sense of adventure in me
